Washington: Updated List of Pesticides Allowed for Use in Marijuana Production

Washington: Updated List of Pesticides Allowed for Use in Marijuana Production

WASHINGTON: The Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) has recently updated the list of pesticides that are allowed for use in marijuana production in Washington State, based on criteria previously established by WSDA. 

WSDA has removed 2 pesticides that were placed on stop sale by the Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA). The ODA reported that both pesticides contained active ingredients that were not disclosed on the label. 

WSDA recommends that marijuana growers not use any existing stocks of the 2 pesticides placed on stop sale by the ODA, until WSDA determines whether similar action is appropriate in Washington.

Removed – Placed on stop sale by ODA

  1. AZAMAX, EPA Reg. No. 71908-1-81268
  2. EVERGREEN PYRETHRUM CONCENTRATE, EPA Reg. No. 1021-2560

In addition, WSDA has added 43 pesticides to the list of allowable products, and has removed 24 pesticides because the registrations for their distribution in Washington were voluntarily cancelled, or because the labels were no longer consistent with WSDA criteria. 

Pesticides containing four new active ingredients (Acetic acid, D-Limonene, Isaria fumosorosea Strain FE 9901, Linseed oil) were added to the list. Most of the pesticides that were added to the list contain active ingredients that were already allowed for use in marijuana production.

Some pesticides are labeled for application to soil or to crop plants, while some pesticides are labeled for application to both soil and crop plants. Other pesticides include herbicides labeled for direct application to, and control of, unwanted plants (weeds). Remember to read and comply with all applicable label directions and precautions when using any pesticide.

Please check your stock of pesticides against the list to ensure that you are using an allowed product. Marijuana growers can continue to use any existing stocks of the 24 pesticides that were removed from the list, but no new product can be purchased.
